Default Trekker seen from the air

Shot some video of the Trekker with a GoPro mounted on a muliticopter.

It isn't real exciting as we had troubles lining up the two birds. At the 6:16 mark, there are a few moves that look cool. We are going to try it again today with a few more eyes helping with the alignment.

Thank you!

Here is a short clip of additional footage including (off topic) a few cyclist who care nothing about a multi rotor craft, and an RC helicopter in their path running at full speed. They later came back around and literally flew under the hovering Trekker about 10 feet off the deck. We were standing in road with our backs turned and did not see them coming. They weaved through us like nothing and in the process about scaring me into a crash. We have talked to them several times about the dangers of doing that. There is plenty of room for them to avoid our "danger area".

The image below shows the designated area (yellow x) grid for RC helicopters.
